Beliefs about our Sacrament

Psanctuary holds the belief that all psilocybin-containing mushrooms of the genus Psilocybe, whether cultivated or wild, are a sacrament to be used as a tool to contact the Divinity within us, and all around us. When speaking broadly about these mushrooms, we prefer the term entheogen rather than psychedelic although they are interchangeable. 

Entheogen means to bring forth the Divine from within. This term coined by R. Gordon Wasson after his initial encounter with the Mazatec mushroom shaman, best describes the function of our sacrament. When we ingest sacred mushrooms we are given access to the Divine within ourselves. 

As a faith-based organization, Psanctuary has the religious right to acquire sacrament through safe and sustainable means. If the sacrament is harvested from the wild, it will be identified, collected, and inspected by a state-recognized expert in mushroom taxonomy. If the sacrament is cultivated, it will be grown by professionals in a controlled setting and treated with the highest respect. Our belief and engagement with the sacrament is sincere, and it will only be used in our services. We will not provide access to our sacrament in any illegal context or outside of our spiritual healing services. For our full legal notice, click here.

Sacrament services

Every service, every communion with sacred mushrooms is different. We respect these ceremonies and treat them as sacred, we also acknowledge the value of experiencing the full breadth of emotion that’s required for deep, spiritual healing. For this reason, our services are often filled with laughter, silence, tears, singing, and everything in between. Again, we trust the innate intelligence of our sacrament and allow it to issue whatever process is necessary for individual healing. We defer to that intelligence to help guide participants as they seek the Divine within. 

We understand to the new and experienced alike, this proposition can be a difficult concept to grasp. We want straight answers in life, and sacred mushrooms generally do not give straight answers. Integration is important, ongoing and dynamic. To assist with this process we provide More Than Integration as a part of our ministry to provide additional support for members. 

More Than Integration combines the teachings of the sacrament with coaching and accountability programs to bring about the lasting personal growth that everyone hopes to gain from working with our sacrament. To truly find the Divine within ourselves we need the insights and experiences that the sacrament provides combined with the application of those insights and embodiment of those experiences. This takes support and discipline. We are so happy and grateful to be able to offer this service to our members.

Current SERVICE Offerings

Sunday Services
Open to the Public Online via Zoom
*We do not partake in sacrament communion during these services

Every Sunday at 10 am Eastern, Psanctuary invites the public to join in our thirty minute service where we read from inspirational teachings. These readings come from a multitude of spiritual perspectives. You can gain access to Sunday Services HERE via email.

After this inspirational service we invite participants to stay on the call for 90 minutes of integration and discussion where we reflect on sacramental experiences and further discuss the readings from our service. Out of a respect for participant vulnerability we ask that our integration core values be adhered to during this call which are: safety, respect, honesty, vulnerability, and equality. These post service discussions are an integral part of membership in our community.

Sacrament Services (For Members Only)

Currently, Psanctuary offers private and small group sacrament services to active members (who have attended at minimum three Sunday Inspiration and Integration services). This offering gives our members access to at minimum, two church clerics for support during communion. Clerics are trained and authorized by the Psanctuary Board of Directors to provide preparation before, care during and integration after sacrament services.

While our sacrament services are performed within a scheduled window of time and with a general itinerary, the structure is loose. When working with the nature of this experience one does well to ‘go with the flow’ of things. At this time Psanctuary has select opportunities for private and group sacrament services. The best way to keep up to date with all available sacrament services it by becoming a member.

Each sacred mushroom service will be attended by at least two church clerics – one male and one female. Their role, first and foremost, is to assist with material needs such as food and water. Clerics offer more direct assistance through emotional support, reassurance, and verbal processing, as needed.

It is our belief that the Source of Life is within you and that our sacrament can reconnect you to this Source. It should be said that the nature of Divinity is both blissful and terrifying, creative and chaotic. For this reason, Psanctuary clerics are here for support. Like lifeguards, our overall hands-off approach allows you to encounter and experience this personal Divinity in safety, even if the waters get choppy.
